Webinar: Sustainability Standards and Women’s Rights to Land and Agricultural Resources
Join us Thursday, June 20, at 10:00 a.m. ET / 4:00 p.m. CEST as we discuss how sustainability standards can contribute positively to women’s rights to land and agricultural resources.
Gender inequalities in agriculture persist, making it difficult for women to access productive resources or own land. Development organizations can leverage voluntary sustainability standards (VSS) to address these challenges when collaborating with farmers’ groups and communities.
Cristina Larrea, IISD, and Kathleen Sexsmith, Pennsylvania State University, will explore timely questions during the webinar, including:
- How do we ensure women's access to land, resources and technology?
- How do we ensure production of female-led food crops versus cash crops?
- How do we support women-led products reaching the market?
- How can VSSs adapt to local contexts in a gender-sensitive manner?
